What is Public Housing?
Public Housing in Columbus, Ohio, is a program managed and operated by CMHA, a federally funded organization designed to benefit eligible low-income families, seniors and persons with disabilities. CMHA administers the public housing program via various properties we own and operate.
According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), there are approximately 1.3 million households living in “public housing,” which is managed by some 3,300 Housing Authorities across the U.S.
Persons interested in applying for CMHA housing may do so by contacting each property individually. All properties have a site based waitlist for housing that opens and closes as needed. Please contact any property in the listings below to inquire if they are accepting new applications to the waitlist.
